    Hollow carbon spheres (HCS) are spherical forms of carbon materials that can be used as nanocontainers due to their empty cores. In this work, zinc cations were doped in HCS (Zn@HCS) from an aquatic solution of zinc nitrate salt. Corrosion inhibition of released zinc cations in saline solution on bare mild steel samples was assessed by EIS, polarization, and electrochemical noise measurements. The sample surfaces were characterized through FTIR spectroscopy and grazing incidence XRD analyses after exposure to the test solutions. The results showed improvement in the corrosion resistance in the presence of Zn@HCS in a long immersion period. Zn@HCS were also incorporated in organosilane... 

    Enhanced electrochemical activity of a hollow carbon sphere/polyaniline-based electrochemical biosensor for HBV DNA marker detection

    Herein, we present a novel, simple, and ultrasensitive electrochemical DNA (E-DNA) sensor based on hollow carbon spheres (HCS) decorated with polyaniline (PANI). A thiolated 21-mer oligonucleotide, characteristic of HBV DNA, is immobilized via electrodeposited gold nanoparticles on HCS-PANI. Cyclic voltammetry (CV), differential pulse voltammetry (DPV), and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) are used to characterize the electrochemical properties of the prepared nanocomposite. Scanning electron microscopy is employed to investigate the morphological texture of the fabricated modifier. An enhanced intrinsic signal of PANI is probed to evaluate the biosensing ability of the prepared...

    In this work, uniform and monodisperse hollow carbon spheres (HCSs) are synthesized through two different processes using polydopamine (PDA), as a carbon precursor, and silica core as a template, under the modified Stöber condition. The surface morphology of the synthesized structures is characterized by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). In the next step, the electrochemical behavior of isoprenaline (ISPN) is investigated by using glassy carbon electrode modified with a thin film of the synthesized hollow carbon spheres. The electrochemical characterization of the modified electrodes is...
